Ishant Sharm has now disclosed why he sledged Steve Smith during the Australia series at Bangalore. He said that Smith kept saying ‘well-bowled mate’ whenever he sneaked a single against me during Pune Test, initially I wasn’t able to understand what he was saying because of the Australian accent is not easy to understand,” Ishant told in the above-mentioned talk show. ”It was after some time when I asked him what was he saying? He then told me that he was praising my bowling. Hearing this I told straight in his face ‘you never praised me when I bowled at you in Australia, only now you find my bowling good and praising my effort,” Ishant Sharma added.
